Being creative while finding a use for saltines, artist Matthew Olin created Alphabet Soup Crackers.
Using the Saltine’s included holes and hand-stitching, Olin transforms this “bland” food into a fun typography project.
And, if you’re feeling daring with your baking, there’s a few more system fonts to choose from. Whether it’s a batch of Garamond, Futura, or Baskerville cookies — just make sure to kern them correctly for the upcoming bake sale.
Jell-O inspires a lot of things… Whipped cream use, jiggliness. But, up until now, it hasn’t done much for typography. FIT student, Alexis Gallo, created Form — a gelatinous typeface and font collection.
After creating Jell-O letters with Futura as a reference — Gallo let them fall where they may, then recreated the distorted alphabet into a viable font. Just make sure to kern your jelly.
Eggs Font is brought to us by Estonia-based studio, Handmade Font. Using about 1000 eggs, 10 pans and 1 bottle of oil, the sunny-side-up typography represents each letter of the alphabet, each numeral, and a few special characters.
The ‘O’ is especially creative… I just made a few myself with some bacon parentheses.
